The steps we take.
Here are the main ways that Little Big Steps aims to champion the improvement of health and wellbeing for kids living with cancer
Fitness watch activity trackers allow kids to set their own goals, get incentivised for effort and monitor activities, as well as interact with other kids going through the same experience.
By gamifying the technology, physical activity seems more like fun than exercise and brings not only enjoyment to kids living with cancer but also much needed benefit.
Exercise Physiologists and Physiotherapists would walk to path and work with medical practitioners and families to ensure programs are being managed in consideration of treatment plans and physical wellbeing of each child.
We are only just scratching the surface of the benefits of 'exercise medicine'. We aim to fund further research into the benefits of physical activity in paediatric oncology patients and the interventions that are employed.
